Doderic Brandybuck was a Hobbit of the Shire.

History[edit | edit source]

Doderic was a son of Seredic Brandybuck and Hilda Bracegirdle. He attended Bilbo's Farewell Party.[1]

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Since it belongs to a Brandybuck, the name is Celtic-sounding. However it is perhaps a form of Germanic Theuderic meaning "people reign".[2]

Portrayal in adaptations[edit | edit source]

2007: The Lord of the Rings Online:

Doderic Brandybuck had ventured into the Old Forest along with his friend Rollo, son of Farmer Maggot. Saradoc Brandybuck asks the player to find them and send them back.
